BMW Business Magazine

The KPM – The King’s porcelain factory in Berlin is one of Germany’s cultural gems. Germany has found it’s place in the world manufacturing market by producing goods of the highest quality and the KPM is no exception. Christoph was there with the BMW Business Magazine who were writing an article about the turnaround of the factory under the leadership of Jörg Woltmann. Christophs task was to create authentic images. It was a staged reportage for BMW to produce editorial car images against the backdrop of the workplace of master craftsmen and women. He made some inspiring portraits of the people who have been employed there for generations.
Friedrich the Great bought the factory in 1763 from a failing merchant. Herr Woltmann refers to his predecessor, the King, whose bust sits in his office, as „my little boss.“ (in German: Chefchen)

The last year of German voluntary service

Christoph took pictures of 13 voluntary social workers and their protégés. He used Polaroid material that was scanned and printed later. “In these portraits we wanted to show the unique relationships that have developed between the civilian servants and their protégés”, Christoph says. There is also a 10 minute film about the everyday work of the civilian servants as an extension of the photo project. This alternative to military service ended in the middle of 2011 after running for almost 50 years.

Dream Men in the House of Photography, Hamburg

Under the motto “The most beautiful men in the world” more than 20,000 visitors came to the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg on the night of the 16.04.2011. There was an exhibition of the works of “Gilbert & George” and “Dream Men – 50 star photographers show their vision of the ideal”. For the Haus der Photographie there was a special program on that particular night. Dream men were invited to be staged in a live photo shooting by Christoph. Christoph and the Deichtorhallen go back a long way. During that night in April he became the 51st photographer for the exhibition “Dream Men”.

Work place – Hamburg harbour

These pictures taken under the motto “Work place – Hamburg harbour” show interesting glimpses behind the curtain of the harbour of Hamburg. They take you to the people whose hearts are beating for the harbour, who in fact are the harbor and who make the harbour's heart beat. For this project Christoph browsed through almost every corner of the harbour – including the buoy indicating the navigable water right in the middle of the river Elbe. Disembarkment controllers, stevedores, people operating a snack bar: in the harbour there are many work places that the public hardly even knows about. But if you look closely you realise that nothing would function without them.

1 Day in Germany – Book project

Taken from the book's foreword: “The seventh of May in 2010 was a very normal Friday. And still it will be kept in memory for a long time. Because on this day 432 photographers travelled through Germany to record what was happening in front of their cameras. In schools and living rooms, on football grounds and at airports, in parliaments and discotheques. They travelled through villages and big towns and looked for moments that repesented their country.” Christoph went to the Harz for that particular day. He took portraits of the people working there and people enjoying their free time.
